With ever-changing plastic surgery innovations in the cosmetic industry, both women and men desire total perfection.

While most people used to bring in photos of their favorite celebrities they wanted to emulate at a consultation, they are now showing filtered photos of themselves, as they believe their doctors can help them achieve their Instagram appearances outside of the app.

Instead of over-inflated lips, inspired by Kylie Jenner, or a plumper, more youthful looking face, people are opting for inflated egos with injections to boost their Klout scores! Individuals really want to mean it when they hashtag #IWokeUpLikeThis.

Top board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Gordon Kaplan, states:

“As an increasing number of women were coming into the office for consultations, an increasing amount of their inquiries were regarding fillers. I then began to notice a pattern.

I was used to patients bringing in the photos of celebrities they held on high pedestals, but the new common practice was to bring in photos of themselves.

Ironically enough, these photos had clearly been already altered and smoothed out, transforming themselves as close to perfection as possible. They officially had become their own inspiration!”

Since the Internet and technology have changed the perspectives and definitions of what it means to be sexy and what it means to be human, the scientific formula behind lighting, angles and filters cannot compete with the medical science of fillers.

The thought process behind this new mental health epidemic is, “Why filter my photos when I can simply use fillers?”

People crave the satisfaction they get from the “likes” and “comments,” so when it doesn’t translate into their real lives, they search for alternative solutions.

It seems Instagram is single-handedly driving traffic right into the offices of cosmetic surgeons (at least according to the experts), who are propelling these non-invasive techniques to the forefront.
